Transporting a caravan

Shipping a caravan is frequently correlated with a lot of difficulties, but in fact it is much less difficult than we realize. If you want to ship a caravan by yourself, don’t forget to check if your driving license enables you to do it.

Kinds of caravans

1) Conventional caravan – as can be deduced from the name, this is the most common type of caravan. This type has 4 strong walls as well as a full height rood. It can vary in length and in the amount of rooms, but in most cases it guarantees quite pleasant travelling conditions. Conventional caravans may have 1 or two axles.

2) Tent trailer – is a type of caravan that is a great alternative if you might want to decrease the costs. Tent trailer can be towed by almost any car , moreover it usually contains the most basic equipment, such as shower and a fridge. Tent trailer provide you large living space however offers very little wind resistance.

C Pop-top caravans -  this kind is similar to conventional caravans with the addition of a expendable roof, that can increase the living space. Pop-top caravans, similar to a tent trailer does not offer much wind resistance.

4) Pop-out caravans – this kind of caravan is equipped with all the features of a pop-top caravan as well as additional expandable area on the foot and the head of the van, which creates a perfect area to fit extra beds, in case you need them. Pop-out caravans are the most favored by big families.

E Camper trailers – this type of caravan offers less living space than most of the types described before, but because they provide with all the basic equipment (shower, hot water and so on) camper trailers are considered to be a convenient as well as budget manner of travelling. 

F The fifth-wheeler – this is the largest type of caravan. It provides with very big amount of living space, which allows whole families to travel in comfort. Because of its considerable size,  the fifth-wheeler must be towed by a larger vehicle instead of a regular car (for example a pickup truck).


It is not always possible to ship a caravan by yourself – such decision hinges on whether you have enough time to cover needed route and whether the caravan itself is functional.

If you decide to hire a transport company to transport your caravan, double-check if you know the precise dimensions of the caravan. Also check if its insurance is up-to-date. In addition, instruct the hauler about state of the caravan – like whether brakes are fully functional.

When relying on a transport provider to ship your caravan you do not need to think about your driving license or speed limits  - all the procedures concern the transport provider. Moreover, shipping companies frequently invest in product liability insurance, which will ensure you a compensation, should anything happens with the caravan on the road.

Cost of transporting a caravan

Cost of shipping a caravan hinges on its dimensions and weight (as it is with almost every type of cargo}. Additionally, the cost is also affected by the state of the vehicle – if it is fully functional, you will likely pay less.
